Late Modernism and Expatriation

Edited by Lauren Arrington

Clemson University Press in association with Liverpool University Press

Modernist Constellations

  • This is the first book to consider expatriation as a constructive force in late modernist aesthetics
  • Essays theorizing the Black Atlantic and giving close attention to the work of Graham Greene, Doris Lessing, and Caryl Philips forge new ground in the relationship between late modernist and postcolonial frames of interpretation
  • The essays included here span twentieth-century writing in contexts of forced and voluntary expatriation, showing how late modernism operates in its global forms
